CWA: Supreme Court Decision Is 'Big Victory for 99 Percent'

Shortly after this morning's Supreme Court ruling upholding the major provisions of President Obama's Affordable Care Act, CWA leaders called it a "big victory for the 99 percent," and said, "The Obama administration worked to bring together all the parties in our current system: consumers, insurers, providers, health care facilities, and employers. Congress held lengthy debates and difficult votes. The Affordable Care Act is an important first step toward true health care reform."
